2017 Reading Challenges Update

2017 reading challenges I'm following
Mostly the challenges that I follow help me direct my reading. As such, some will not provide a challenge, simply indicate how well I am doing. Some of the challenges are external to this blog while others are hosted here or on a blog that I manage. In practical terms I do allow some challenges to overlap, that is, most books will appear in more than one challenge. In addition many of the challenges are simply continuations of challenges I took on last year

 This page is a work in progress

You may play along in either the Golden or Silver Mystery Eras (or, for the more adventurous, both)
*Challengers may play either the Silver Age or Golden Age Card—or both.
I have created a special page for this challenge and will then update that when needed.

British Books Challenge 2017 - mine will be crime fiction


The aim is to read at least 12 books by British authors. This is really not much of a challenge for me as I read so much British crime fiction, so the challenge is really just a way of keeping my records. Not sure I will join an "official" challenge.
